Subject: 	The American Acclimatization Society
	I'd like to find a brief history of the American Acclimatization
Society. I believe it was a late 19th century organization which had, as its
mission, the introduction to this continent all species of birds mentioned
by Shakespeare. The Starling is often cited as an example of an old world
bird that was introduced here as a result of their efforts. I'd be particularly
interested in anything that addresses the subject from a natural history or
ecological angle. Again, any help would be appreciated....
